Phew! I've been quite busy over the past month! I apologise in advance for not getting a blog post out more frequently for you all, but here I am! I want to start off this post by talking about my recent graduation! Last July, I successfuly achieved my Higher National Diploma in Creative Media Production (Computer Games Design). Last Friday was my graduation event and this was such a lovely day, hosted in the Sheffield Cathedral. Considering it's the first graduation I've had, it's a strange feeling of wearing robes, you feel a true sense of accomplishment. It's a day that will probably stick by me for the rest of my days.

In other news, my projects at university are well underway now. I am currently working on re-mastering a game environment from the game Penumbra: Overture, I'm also working on another project where I have to focus my artistic flare towards one specialised area of game design. For me, this choice is plant life and organic modeling. 3D sculpting is also something which I have not previously had the opportunity to learn. Taking into account that this can be an invaluable skill for working in a game design studio, it is something that I wanted to get stuck into.
In my spare time, I'm also still working on my new 2D game project Xodusse along with XorDev. We want to get a lot of bugs patched out in the newest build and add more gameplay elements in preparation for next month's Ga-Ma-Yo event, which I am really looking forward too! In the mean time though, it's an adios, so I hope you all have a happy Halloween! I also hope to see you again around here soon!
